West Virginia Writers, Inc.Established in 1977, West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the  largest nonprofit, all-volunteer, writers' resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia.

We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of all human endeavors.  Our aim is to expand and develop creative writing and professional opportunities for writers and to connect the state's writers with others in the literary community and the public at large.

WV Writers sponsors both an annual writers conference and an annual writing competition.

Our 2017 Annual Writing Contest is now accepting entries for the 2017 contests.

      Colette,

      The easiest way is to join. We send out information to our members about the conference via our newsletter and by email. However, the other easy way is to just check this website around March. We post news about both our conference and our contest there and update it as the conference approaches. The conference is always held the second weekend of June. We also always take walk-in registrants, so pre-registering is not vital to attending.
